This water originaly consisted of 3 seperate ponds, dug to provide clay for the local brickworking industry, however, once they had fulfilled their purpose they were totally flooded to create one lake of around 22 acres. However the original working have retained their own identity and are referred to as "The Main Lake", "The Bungalows", and "The Leg".
All areas of the lake are fishable, and a full circuit of the lake can be achieved with ease on foot, the "Leg" also provides access for Disabled Anglers.
There are 2 vehicles access points and car parks, which are gained via locked gates, details of which can be found in our permits.
Combwich is well stocked with most species expected to be found in a still water, but is probably noted for its superb head of Carp, Commons in particular, the current lake record is 31lb, but bigger fish have been sighted, most tactics work, though it cannot be said it is an "easy" water and a bit of thought will be required on occasion.
The past few years have seen Rudd re establish themselves and there are now some very high quality fish to be caught of specimen sizes, and it is quite possible to "bag" up on these.
The lake has always been noted for some very good Bream, and double figure specimens are possible, as well as a good head of "skimmers".
Roach are also present in large numbers, and Tench to double figures have been caught in recent times.
Predators exist as well, with double figure Pike, and some very big Perch.
The lake is well maintained, grass cut, swims checked, vegetation controlled and trees pruned where required.
There is an Eco Toilet located in the Main Car Park.
There is a local shop located in the village, which provides the usual items expected, and a Snack Van can be found in the lay by opposite the main entrance.
Cannington has very good local amenities, shop, butchers, bakers, newsagents, etc
Water is not available on site, so those planning to fish a longer session will need to provide this.
The Town of Bridgwater is 5 miles away and very well served by supermarkets, in fact you will be spoilt for choice!
Somerset Angling can be found located in Bath Road, and in addition to selling our permits; it has one of the largest stocks of tackle to be found in the South West.
